  • Trending Now – The clear acetate frames that you will see on the market this year, like the “Zephirin”, by Jacques Mare Mare, may stem from a past era, but the updated styles will have you looking cool and stylish.
  • Most PopularKaren Walker’s line, “Burroughs” takes the basic black stereotype to a whole new level of style by incorporating cool trendy earpieces and polarised lenses making them not only stylish but functional.

Shoes and Footwear:

Everyone can use a new pair of shoes now and then, so why not make shoe upgrades a seasonal activity keeping your footwear trendy as well as comfortable.
